We used it to write our own simple distributed computing software after realizing hadoop was too complicated (and thus bug prone) for our embarrassingly parallel needs.

It took us less time to get the system written, stable and up and running then it had to get hadoop setup (different developers so not a fair comparison but still).

It feels like python with the good parts of C on linux (most things are file like object) and I plan on using it more and more as the ecosystem of available libraries matures.

Sounds like a hell of a blog article. I hope you write it.
